Himani was found dead in a bathroom with a gunshot injury in her head. A complaint was filed by Om Prakash, Himani’s uncle, that said Himani was shot dead because the Kashyap family was unhappy with the dowry she had brought, and demanded a Fortuner SUV vehicle after the wedding.
Three other accused, the younger son Siddharth and sisters-in-law Sarita and Shobha were said to be absconding.
Police say Himani married Sagar Kashyap three years ago and was the mother of a year-old son. Himani’s father is a former Uttar Pradesh Minister.
